It is possible that the regulator is leaking into the intake plenum, or one of the injector lines has a bad O-ring and is doing the same thing. This was actually a big problem with this system on the 4.3L engines, but it is a little different on the 5.7. Before tearing into this this though, I think it would be a good idea to get a professional diagnosis. I would start with a compression test. The miss could be caused by low compression in one or more cylinders. The injector assembly has the regulator mounted right on the side of it and the whole assembly resides inside the intake plenum. It is not that difficult a job, requires some patience and skill, the worst part is the cost of the parts.
I've attached a picture of the injector assembly with the reg attached and highlighted

another engineers wet dream. think of it this way . what is normally in the intake when the engine is running.. answer vacume, hence the regulator gets its vacume without a hose connected to it as its already in a full time vacume chamber.no hose required . ps be carefull to seat the regulator and o rings securely into the housing befor you reattach the secureing metal clip.
good luck chris

Two places to look...if you have separate injectors for each cylinder then regulator should be at the front end of the fuel rail. If you have throttle body injection it is on the throttle body itself.

The regulator is in the fuel tank. You must drop the tank to get to the system It is part of the fuel pump/fuel pressure regulator/fuel level sending unit. If just changing the regulator which you can,make sure you install new o-rings, put a little clean gas on them to install. Cheaper than a new fuel pump.
